In downtown and close to other historical sites, this one is particularly good. Lovely staff particularly one woman who is a 6th generation descendant of Navarro and is very passionate about the history. Well worth a visit!

Really well restored home of one of Texas' heroes. He was very important in the evolution of Texas as it is today. The audio presentations are extremely well done and informative. Highly recommend- ideal to visit during a walking tour of San Antonio.
